The Democratic Party turns on policies promoted by its own party after being itself a victim of
Democratic Rep. Angie Craig of Minnesota is calling for a fight against crime after she was brutally attacked in her Washington, DC apartment building last week.
Craig was connected to the “defend the police” movement through one of her employees who, during the violent 2020 riots sparked by the death of George Floyd, posted online: “Burn. This. All. down” according to Fox News.
Young also once said that cities should “fund advisors, not cops.”
Clearly, Craig didn’t deserve to be attacked, regardless of her politics or the opinions of her employees. Craig really had the foundation to oppose abolishing the Minneapolis Police Department when such a view was unpopular with her party.
But it’s tragic what it took heartbreak attack and potential exposure to death to make her a strong proponent of punishing those who threaten society with repeated violence.
Craig was in the elevator at her home last Thursday when she was allegedly molested by a man who police identified as 26-year-old Kendrid Hamlin.
After Hamlin stopped Craig from getting out of the elevator, the collision became violent and she was punched in the face. Craig threw hot coffee at the attacker and was able to escape.
“He wasn’t going to let me out of that elevator if I hadn’t fought my way out,” Craig later said. KARE-TV.
It turns out that Hamlin has quite a criminal past.

Washington Examiner reported that over the past eight years, Hamlin has been prosecuted for numerous crimes that were either violent or sexual in nature.
Shortly before the alleged attack on Craig, he was arrested for assaulting US Capitol police officers. He served a 35-day sentence and allegedly attacked Craig shortly after his release.
Craig called for common sense reforms that would ensure violence. repeat offenders closed on tuesday interview with CBS news.
“I was attacked by a man whom DC had not pursued to the fullest extent in nearly a decade, in the 12 attacks before me that morning,” she told the publication.
“Not even in every case he got 10 days or 30 days. Many times the charges were dropped completely before justice was done at all. … And so I think we need to think about how we can make sure we don’t just release criminals.”
Craig suggested that violent crime sentences ranging from a few days to a month were not enough. Such punishment prevalent in the District of Columbia and other areas of the country run by her party members and George Soros-backed “prosecutors”.
“If you throw someone in jail for 10 days and you think, ‘Here’s your punishment and we’ll let you out on the street again,’ what the hell do you think will happen?” she asked.
“We have to get these repeat offenders off the streets.”
Craig experienced the vulnerability firsthand. She deserves credit for acting to protect herself.
Now she has the opportunity to become one of the very few staunch public safety Democrats. She deserves credit for calling for change in the political environment, where she could be ostracized by her own party for speaking out about crime.
Let’s hope her decision to speak out will inspire other Democrats in Washington.
